Norwegian Wedding in Spain

The 20th May 2013 saw the wedding of Kathe and Robert. I have just spent the afternoon with Kathe at a beach bar as she came back to Spain for a holiday :) Sometimes in life you meet people that  you know you were destined to have met, and thats how I feel about Kathe. My intention was to meet her for a quick coffee today, but when I looked at the time 3 hours had passed! I hope she knows that she has a friend for life in Spain! (well, she will when she reads this blog)
So when Kathe and Robert and all their guests arrived in Spain, they were expecting some of that famous Spanish sun, but what they received was clouds and wind. On day one of their visit – I got a frantic call from Kathe saying her son had been hit in the face by a golf club so we spent the afternoon in the hospital.The day of the wedding arrived and the weather was still overcast and cloudy but no rain was forecast. Their ceremony and reception was to be held at a stunning Spanish Cortijo – all outside.

When I went to see Kathe at about 1pm on the day of the wedding, I asked for her and was told “oh she went for a sleep” This was a first LOL and showed how laid back she was :) so I left her to it and headed of to the venue. The bloody clouds were still screaming “Im going to rain” but I was determined to at least keep the ceremony and welcome drinks outside, which is exactly what happened. I knew it was going to rain at some point so we decided to set up the reception inside. THANK GOD because at the end of the drinks reception, the heavens opened.

Even though having dinner inside was plan B, it still looked stunning. Very Spanish, and perfect for guests that had travelled from Norway for a Spanish wedding.

As usual, the whole team made this wedding seamless. A huge hug to the venue owners, who let me leave it until the very last minute for setting up the ceremony – most venues dont allow this!

Thanks to David Toms for capturing this wedding so beautifully and making it look stunning even in the rain!, Amanda Wilcox for learning a song in Norwegian (yes she doesnt speak Norweigan but sang in it) I didnt understand a word, but it sounded great, Gorgeous Event Decoration for the pretty stuff, Little Lolas Cupcakes for the yummy cakes, DJ ROB rocks the House for being the best DJ, Marbella Video for videography (Dougie is going to find it hard to edit 3 hours of speeches in Norwegian 😉 Vicki Rhodes for a moving ceremony and Tamara Vega for being my right hand girl.
